Location: CAS 200 / 725 Commonwealth Ave

"Shrieks, Outcries, and Fainting Boys: Homosexuality and the U.S. Cultural Front" Aaron Lecklider's presentation explores the complicated relationship between homosexuality and the left in American culture between 1920 and 1960. Foregrounding the cultural left -- literature, performance, print culture, and the arts -- Lecklider's talk draws on research completed for his forthcoming book, Love's Next Meeting: Homosexuality and the Left in American Culture (University of Chicago Press).
